Jeter resumed baseball activities three weeks ago for the first time since the end of the season. It's a way to put the disappointment in the past.
"It takes a long time to get over it. That's what people don't realize," Jeter said as several Yankee prospects took batting practice nearby. "It's a whole year you've played. The worst phrase in all of sports is saying, 'Ah, get them next year.' Well, next year is another 12 months. It's not like you're going to have the opportunity to play forever.
"Every year that goes by is one less year on your career, so it takes awhile to get over it. But that's what makes spring training so fun. Everyone starts over."
Jeter admits that it would be odd not playing with Bernie Williams anymore.
